GUWAHATI, March 14: The state government is going to make at least 40,000 appointments in May this year.

Informing this in the state Assembly on Tuesday, state finance minister Ajanta Neog said that recruitment for 40,000 posts had already been made.

The Assam government has initiated necessary steps to provide one lakh government jobs to people, she said.

Responding to a question by Independent legislator Akhil Gogoi on BJP’s poll promise to provide one lakh jobs by March 31, 2022, the minister said the remaining gap will also be filled up soon.

“The process to appoint one lakh unemployed people has begun. Once the recruitment process is over, appointments will be given in a phased manner,” she said.

Gogoi, however, claimed that the government had been providing misleading recruitment figures at different forums and the same candidates had been selected for different posts.

“The BJP had promised to provide one lakh government jobs in one year, but it has not been able to do so,” the Raijor Dal president added.

CPI (M) legislator Manoranj Talukdar also expressed dissatisfaction over the minister’s reply and pointed out that the BJP assumed power almost two years ago, but has “failed to live up to its promise”. (With inputs from PTI)
